Office filler injections are a very popular and common procedure used to plump up and shape the lips.  But what about fat?  Fat is the body’s own “natural filler” that is ideal for restoring or enhancing fullness, and creating more sensual shapes and profiles for the lips.  And most of us have at least a little extra we’d be willing to part with to contribute.  When the lips are too thin, or could use a little extra pouty-ness or have lost a lot of volume with aging, fat is a much better option than the fillers.  Although there may be a small amount of absorption, the fat stays there, nice, soft, alive, and natural feeling.  And the procedure is typically a one-time expense.  Fillers can be costly right from the beginning, and needing repeat treatments on a twice a year basis are not unusual.
